    Question for the pro-transgender, gender fluid, anyone can be whatever they want to be, people out there: Should a male be granted a combat license to enter a MMA fight to pummel females because he 'identifies' as a woman?

    The worst reaction I got was at a Japanese restaurant - the host initially wanted me to tie my guide dog to a post outside. After speaking to a manager we got seated with no issue. Most often people don't even realize my dog is there as I often try to sit in booths and have my dog sit under the table in the booth so he is out of the way.

    Dog is almost definitely 1000x cleaner than her shitty kids.

    I'm not defending the loud woman in that video however, an animal that gives emotional support does not qualify to be a service animal and is not covered under ADA law allowing it to accompany individuals with disabilities into all public areas and buildings.

    I wish it was otherwise.

    We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men. Edward R. Murrow

    I wonder if it's a religious/Muslim thing. My dad uses Dial-A-Ride a lot to get to the VA, and their Muslim drivers always freak out whenever his dogs bark or come to the door.

    So do I. Certainly there needs to be well-defined criteria and an approval process (otherwise people will take advantage), but the law should allow a dog that provides emotional support to be defined as a service animal.

    If the person has PTSD, it is covered as a service animal.

    "Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. "

    There are also state laws that add to, but do not take away from, the definition of a service animal.

    Too often the term "PTSD" is used for dogs that "only" provide emotional support. That is why business owners are allowed to ask what kind of service the animal provides and to deny entry to a business if it is an emotional support animal.
